I have a 11 month old cat that I got from a shelter he has been checked for worms and diabetes. He wants to eat all day long. He sits at his food bowl crying. You go into the kitchen and he is all under your feet trying to get you to feed him. He will get into any food left out esp bread then he throws it up. When we eat I have to crate him since he wont leave you alone and gets in your face and tries to get your food and will take food straight out of my 4 year olds hand. I feed him good quality food and its not cheap. He is fed Blue Spa Select and is made of good things and no fillers. He is only supposed to be getting 1/2 to1 cup. I space this out over 3 feedings a day or he would drive me mad with the whining. He ends up getting about 1 1/2 cups of food. He gets 3 cans a week of Natural Balance food. What can I do to have a cat that doesn't try to eat my cabinet door to get at his food?
He is on a schedual get food at 8am 2 pm and 8 pm.
He cant eat all that canned food as it doesnt go well with his stomach and he gets the runs from it. that is why i only feed 1/2 small can 3 times a week.
they tell me to just keep a bowl of food out but I have put 2 cups of food in there and a matter on an hour its gone and he is still whining. I tried on another occasion and put out one of those auto feeders and he eat so much he threw up and then 1/2 hour later was back eating.
thank you all.
I have had the cat about 3 months now and I was wondering if he over eats because the shelter always had these big bowls of food in their cage and that he is used to eating more than I give him. He was on Blue when I got him as they said he had a sensitivity to what was in the cheaper foods. He is not over weight at all more on a slender to normal size.
